  • If you are in the area of Bahla, you should make a small detour in any case to the beautiful tombs at Al Ayn. These so-called Beehive tombs dating back approximately to 3200 to 2700 BC. Here in Al Ayn, there is a concentration of about 25 graves, situated on a Rocky Ridge, close to the road. A part of these graves is very well preserved and the view from here is worth the little trip by well-maintained tar road. This square is one of the highlights of a trip of Oman is to us.

Where to stay in Nizwa

Nizwa has relatively few accommodations to offer its guests, drawn to the historical core of the former capital. The relative lack of tourist infrastructure may well be what's keeping the traditional feel of the city center alive. A couple of standard hotels can be found in the center, and a few more in the towns to the north and south along Highway 21. The capital, Muscat, lies about an hour and a half's drive to the north-east along a good quality highway. Most visitors simply visit Nizwa during a day trip from the capital.
